After years of answering questions from various visitors to Borderlands, we've set up a blog so that the questions and comments can be visible for all to see (and to answer if you'd like). So, what would you like to know? Any information on the border region that you'd like to share? Write us! The community is open, the postings are moderated, so there might be a bit of time before you see your comment.
I'd like to encourage students of the Borderlands 1302 class to write in, ask us your questions, let us know if you're having a problem finding information. Ms. Vise is requiring that you consult either me or Helen in the process of doing your research. We'll be staffing the reference desk from 9-1 Monday through Friday, and are also available via email.
So, let's introduce ourselves. I'm Rachel Murphree and I maintain Borderlands
and this blog as well. Helen Bell (http://helenbell.livejournal.com/profile
) will also be posting and answering questions. Our emails are mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
As a starter for research, there are two important tools. First, the Be a Borderlands Detective page
which walks you through the steps of initial research in regional history. Also, there is the Potential Topics
page where I'm placing information I find on various topics that Ms. Vise has suggested, or other topics that interest me. Consulting this page for your topic may save you significant time in your research!
Here's to your research, Rachel
